4 stars Discovering a man and a musician.

The man who has played every style in music: Kevin Ayers. From gently ballads or non-sense riffs to spectacular and dramathic themes.

In this album you can hear the spirit of Wild Flowers, Soft Machine, Robert Wyatt and ..... why not the insanity of Syd Barrett.

Played along with a multitude of big artists (R. Cooper, M. Oldfield, all Soft Machine's Friends etc.), fans of prog music will appreciate some short riffs that are very nice and a mix of Canterbury and prog style.

Obscured by Shooting at the Moon, I discovered late this album and even if I'm not a fan of the style of Soft Machine, I think that everyone who wants to discover something ..... strange and funny for our ears and mind must buy this album.
